MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC 207 welterweight Tim Means as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card bout this Friday night (December 30, 2016) against Alex Oliveira at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The talented veteran is expecting a scrap especially on the inside
“I think all of [Alex Oliveira’s] strengths play to my strengths. He likes to get inside and grab that body lock. He has a really long reach but he doesn’t use it that much. He’s either way outside with his kicks or he gets inside trying to grab a body lock. He keeps very, very low hands, and I’m expecting him to want to wrestle. He’ll throw some kicks, some teeps, but I expect him to want to get inside. But if you get inside on me, I have elbows and I’m very comfortable with him from his previous fights.”
